T.J. Babinetz from the Star Wars 6″ Black Series Facebook group also reports finding this wave at Walmart in Mississauga, Canada. Time to step up those toy runs!

It is truly amazing what is possible when time and extraordinary talent is applied to Hasbro’s products. Case in point is this jaw-dropping example of OldBoy CTTS’s work on this repaint of the 6″ Black Series Captain Poe Dameron from The Last Jedi. Click the image above for a closer look and then head to his Facebook page for more examples of his astounding work.
There are only 2 days left to secure your order for this month’s Smuggler’s Bounty box from Funko. One of the exclusive items has already been revealed via their blog. Preorders end midnight on November 15.
PROS: The upgraded deco and soft goods for Rey make this far superior (in my opinion) to the standard Black Series figure release. The inclusion of diecast weapons are a nice touch as they feel weighty in the hand and add a bit more authenticity to the figure. The included Crait base components are nicely sculpted and painted. It will be interesting to see how this environment and Rey interact in the film.
CONS: I, and I think many, feel that issuing superior versions of the same character in such close proximity to the initial figure release date reinforces the practice of collectors waiting out inital product launches. Despite the improvements to the figure and the inclusion of the environmental base, the price of this exclusive at 75% markup over the basic Black Series figure seems excessive.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
